." i am making kelly. earlier today, secretary of state clinton publicly board bashar al-assad's regime. this comes after terrible violence of syria this weekend. this is video received on saturday. small towns being bombarded, sending innocent families and women and small children once again running for their lives. a short time ago, the united nations announced it is withdrawing all nonessential personnel from the country. as the possible threat of chemical warfare now looms. look at these families. look at this. along with an active chemical weapons program, syria has ballistic weapons program with deadly gas. they have vast amounts of nerve agents and finite, all decide to cause fetal death. this from the white house moments ago. >> is the opposition makes teaching expenses, the bashar escalationgime, we have been of weapons used against the syrian people. as the president has said, and hughes were proliferation by the syrian regime would cross a red line for the united states. megyn: joining me now is ambassador john bolton, a former ambassador to the united nations and the fox new

comes amidst u.s. concerns that the assad repeople may be cooking up recipes, mixing materials for chemicals. that possible preparation is taking place at more than one chemical plant in syria, officials say. u.s. intelligence shows nothing has been moved out of the facilities, however. and officials say there is no indication syria is on the verge of using chemical we papoweapon. in turkey monday, russian president putin called the deploy ment of the patriot missiles unnecessary. but tuesday, the russian foreign minister said any use of chemical weapons has grave implications. while down playing reports about syria. >> translator: we can call them rumors, but the syrian authorities are moving a stockpile of chemical weapons or that they want to use them. as soon as we hear such messages, we prepare. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton spent the day meeting with her fellow ministers as they approved a plan to provide turkey with the missiles. nato says the number of missiles and their precise location along the border still needs to be worked out. it could be weeks

for syria. i imagine both secretary clinton and mr. brahimi would be lean on the russians to convince assad to leave power. he's finished in syria. there's no way he's going to emerge victorious. the only options for him are to lose and lose his life, most probability, or leave syria but certainly this civil war now more than 40,000 people dead, and with the latest problem with chemical weapons, the civil war has to be brought to an end. >> now, ambassador, both president obama and secretary of state clinton warned chemical weapons are the red line on syria. i also want to play something that defense secretary leon panetta had to say in reaction to the reports about the preparation of chemical weapons. let play that and talk about what diplomatic options are left. >> the president of the united states made very clear that there will be consequences. there will be conconsequences if the assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemical weapons on their own people. i'm not going to speculate or comment on what those potential consequences would be. >> well, the obvious question is
the bombs are still on the ground but hilary clinton and president barack obama are warming assad that using chemical weapons will not go unanswered. >> this would cross a red line. and those responsible will be held to account. >> i want to make it very clear to assad and those in his command. the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be unacceptable. >> germany's cabinet has now approved setting up anti-missile batteries. nato emphasizes this isn't seen as an intervention shun. what turkey is concerned about are those short-range missiles possibly falling into the wrong hands. secretary of state hillary clinton is in a meeting today, and it is likely during the meeting it will come up that they will talk about trying to get a un peace process for syria back on track. meanwhile u.s. authorities are monitoring what is going on there. and there was news yesterday that they were starting to mix the chemical weapons and move them around, and now they are possibly getting ready to load them on missiles whether or not that are getting ready
but we are certainly planning to take action if that is a very strong warning to the assad regime that their behavior is reprehensible. >> clinton did not say if the u.s. had any new evidence to suggest they are planning to use a stockpile of missiles they are believed to have. watts told politico the defeat is evidence that their party needs to broaden its appeal to minority voters. priebus has announced he is seeking a second term. party insiders say out of the 168 votes from members who get to pick, he has 130 of those locked up publicly. nbc news has learned president obama will ask the dnc to approve keeping debbie wasserman schultz as chair. the fact the president carries her home state might have helped her cause. 23% gave president obama an excellent rating, 18% said the same for cuomo and both bloomberg and fema got 14% excellence ratings. cory booker is taking part in what he has labelled as the food stamp challenge. he will only eat what food stamps can provide, $4 a meal. a back and forth twitter exchange about the role in funding school breakfast and lunch programs. f
involved. >> right. we also have a crisis brewing in syria with the assad regime growing increasingly desperate. intelligence reports indicate that a chemical attack against his own people could be imminent. even russia, syria's most powerful ally, is alarmed. their foreign minister met yesterday with secretary hillary clinton discussing the possibility of a syria without assad in power. >> wow. >> this morning rebels have declared damascus's airport a military target, warning civilians and airlines not to approach it. >> richard, that's what we're looking at. we're looking at russia to see when russia finally gives up on assad. if they are, in fact, coming close, it's over. he's done. >> that's the beginning of the end. and i think that's finally in play. brahimi who preceded kofi annan trying to do a diplomatic process finally, i think, has something to work with. it's the possibility of the threat that the syrian regime might turn to chemical munitions, and the russians realize that would be the equivalent of jumping and that their long-term equities. the russians realize that woul
